The action continues in Houston with Sam Querrey and Christian Garin fighting for a place in the final of the U.S. Men’s Clay Court Championship.

<h2>Sam Querrey (8) vs. Christian Garin</h2><p><a href="" target="_blank" title="Check Querrey - Garin Betting Odds"><strong>Saturday, April 13, Houston</strong></a></p><p>Christian Garin continued his quest for a first ATP Tour title on Friday with a 6-3, 6-2 win over Henri Laaksonen in just 71 minutes. The former junior world No.4 broke serve four times and won 41.67% of the points played on Laaksonen’s serve in a dominant display from the Chilean. Garin has enjoyed a stellar start to the season, reaching his maiden ATP Tour final at the Brasil Open in Sao Paulo. Adding to this, the 22-year-old already guaranteed a new career-high ranking next week with an unprecedented appearance in the Top 65.</p><p>Garin will next take on No.8 seed Sam Querrey for a place in the final of the U.S. Men's Clay Court Championship. The two-time finalist advanced to the semi-finals in Houston for the first time since 2015 after a 7-6(6), 7-6(4) victory against Janko Tipsarevic. Known as one of the best servers on the ATP Tour, Querrey fired 23 aces and lost just five points on his first serve. On the other hand, the 31-year-old American saved set points in each sets and has yet to drop his serve since the first round against Bjorn Fratangelo.</p><p>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\" data-lang=\"en\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;Sam Querrey, the last American man standing in Houston, advances to his second semifinal of 2019 after a straight-set win over Janko Tipsarevic: &lt;a href=\"\"&gt;;/a&gt; &lt;a href=\"\"&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;— (@Tennis) &lt;a href=\"\"&gt;12 de abril de 2019&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt;\n&lt;script async src=\"\" charset=\"utf-8\"&gt;&lt;/script&gt;"}[/]</p><p>Looking now at the odds for this contest, the bookmakers are expecting a close encounter with Querrey as the slight favourite <a href=";a=6a145d2b-505f-491b-a70e-2f5f31742828" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Play at this A+ Rated Sportsbook!">at 83/100 (1.83) with Pinnacle</a>.
